In September last year, A-Trak came to Australia with the Parklife tour. While he was here he joined Heaps Decent in Wagga Wagga, NSW where we took him to Riverina Juvenile Justice Centre for a day of music making with the young artists inside the centre.

Nina and Levins had spent the week beforehand running workshops at the centre, writing lyrics and practising flow and mic control. When A-Trak arrived at Shepherd’s Park, the school within Riverina Juvenile Justice Centre, everyone was ready to make something awesome.

‘Anywhere But Here’ is the product of our day spent recording with A-Trak. The four boys you can hear on the track wrote their own raps, as did MC Huz, a volunteer from Riverina Community College who joined us on the day. Some of the other boys played didgeridoo and made wild noises, which A-Trak sampled and used as the base for the beat.

We’re very proud of this song, and super thankful of A-Trak for giving up his time to join us for the session and for making ‘Anywhere But Here’ as amazing as it is! You can read A-Trak’s fantastic recount of the recording experience on his blog post from last year.

So here it is, after such a long wait, for you to download for free!

Thanks again to A-Trak, to the boys and staff from Riverina Juvenile Justice Centre, to MC Huz, Thom Paton and all at Riverina Community College and to everyone at Fuzzy. Thanks also to Georgia Perry for the artwork you see above!


I reviewed the pretty awesome new WarioWare game for Time Out, read the review here.



As this week is Reconciliation Week and the 10 year anniversary of the Reconciliation Bridge Walk, the New South Wales Reconciliation Council held a Schools Reconciliation Challenge to raise awareness of the concept of Reconciliation amongst young people. Yesterday, some of the Heaps Decent crew headed down to their Awards Ceremony where we were privileged to experience a fantastic choir performance by Revesby South Public School students and Major Award winner Paige Lagettie’s stellar performance of her Major Award winning song!

So my housemate Jeremy convinced me to buy the new Pokemon Heart Gold game (he opted for Soul Silver), which is the first Pokemon game I’ve played since I stole a kid I was babysitting’s Gameboy in in 1997. 

I defeated the Lance bro (after 30 hours of addictive gameplay) and now have to go destroy a bunch of other pussy gym leaders in some other town. It’s a pretty great game but for real, Joey needs to stop calling me.


IGN has a massive new article celebrating 20 years of Mario’s dinosaur sidekick Yoshi. The little green dude is mine and Bianca’s favourite video game character ever and we can often be heard making ridiculous Yoshi noise at each other. It’s embarassing.

Also I gotta say that I actually like the game ‘Yoshi’s Story’. Stop hatin!

If you’ve ever been backstage at The Metro Theatre on George St you’ve surely seen at least one of the dozens of penis drawings that adorn the walls of the venue.

Recently I tried to take a photo of each wanger. Here’s the meaty evidence.

That’s a lot of D. If you’ve seen more than that at another venue let me know!!


Levins and Adam Bozzetto went back to Riverina Juvenile Justice Centre in Wagga Wagga to run two days of music workshops for Australian Youth Week 2010.

We recorded 2 songs while we were there which we’ll put up on the site very soon!
